Nike 10K Marathon
The act was a show by Julieta Venegas in the Centro Municipal de Exposiciones
Argentinean company Show Room has been carrying out events for NIKE for 10 years now. For this 2008, they did the NIKE 10K Marathon which has taken place at a regional level for the last years, and it was particularly done at a global level this year. "We have been working in this event since it was done with only a few runners up to now, gathering more than 20,000, and my role was to coordinate and design sound. This year besides all the traditional things, the act was a show by Julieta Venegas in the Centro Municipal de Exposiciones venue", Nicolás Cassieri detailed.
Show Room was in charge of all the sound section. The main goal was to give sound to all the runners' area, the start stage, the meeting point and the finish stage where Julieta Venegas' show would take place. The most important point was to be able to send all the audio from the stage where Julián Weich, Maju and Iván de Pineda were as hosts, to the stage were Julieta Venegas was acting and vice versa. For this, microwave signals provided by FOX Sport were used. Altogether, company's technicians working here were 8 plus the load in and out people, giving a total of 14 workers.
"We've been in contact with Julieta's production for a month before the event, to see their requirements regarding the stage and we coordinated the assembly of both stages plus 8 structures for flying the equipment", Nicolás continued explaining. "The event was perfect, after analyzing which company could join us for this event we decided on Ariel Marti from Rosario (Sta. Fe, Argentina) who did an excellent job. All the events done by Nike are a challenge for us since they go for more year after year regarding the event's development, therefore we really want to thank Fernando Tambasco (Events Manager for Nike) for trusting our company".
